La Vigna di Casa
Tucked away to one side of our garden you will find La Vigna di Casa....the vineyard of home.
We are the 9th generation of Hubs family to be living in this house. There has always been a vine growing in the garden but sadly when we began the alterations to the property, the vine became damaged and died.
We were so lucky that way back in the 1960's Great Aunt had taken a cutting , so one sunday afternoon in the summer of 2005 we drove down to see her and Hubs took himself a cutting from the offspring of the original. He has tended and cared for that vine...often been mocked and teased because of it, but now 12 months on we are blessed with over 100 bunches of grapes...all sweet and seedless and so yummilcious
The guys are going to harvest the grapes tomorrow and prepare them for the wine making session which will begin on Sunday! Ive stocked up on jars and have all my sugar and yeast ready and waiting!!
Ive been meaning to upload this piccie of some new shoes my sister bought me....arent they just yummy. They are so comfortable to wear...only problem I have is deciding whether to wear these or my Crocs...I love my Crocs and have done since I bought my first pair in May BUT they are just soooo common now and everyone is wearing them. Clotheswise I dont "do" what everyone else does!
Im off to Gloucester tomorrow to attend a couple of classes. One Clearly Love, by Emily Falconbridge and the other Trash Book Alley by the eber so lubberly Kirsty Wiseman.
Im really looking forward to getting messy and experimenting with the box of tricks that Kirsty has waiting for us.
Im picking Fiona up from Weston Super Mud and then we will razz up the M5 to the venue....nice to have some scrappy company for the ride......Oh Im sooooo excited
